personal tragedy and is able to speak to that in an emotional compelling way as joe biden. going back to what you were saying about very little hope of this package or really much of anything, passing it is republican house. what do you think the white house strategy is? this was not having crafted to the political realities. it was what they actually wanted. was the idea to use it to show this is not going to pass the republican house because they are extreme and unwilling to bend and use that as leverage down the line and painting the gop in my opinion, painting them as extreme and unwilling to pend. >> they are taking great pains to be realm and they are looking at all aspects of the issue and mental health and video games. i do think that you are seeing a president who in all regards has become increasingly defiant and combative and taking his case out to the country and i think it's part narrative that obama is trying to tell about. i don't want to overstate the popularity of what the white house is is doing. the numbers have moved in the way of the gun control adkro voicates, bu

clinton, you also have joe biden, he's been ahead of this issue for a long time and a pers -- and senator gill brand, used to talk about how she had a gun underneath her bed and she's also someone who's talking about what do we do to stop gun violence. is this going to be even be beyond a conversation, i'm wondering, ted? is gun control going to be a kind of litmus test in 2016 for democrats? >> i think it could be. in presidential politics, there are basically two issues, the economy and war. and if the nation's economy continues to improve, if we're able to get out of afghanistan the way the president got us out of iraq. this issue of gun violence is emerging very quickly. and i have no doubt that it could become one of the dominant issues in the midterm election and also in the general election. >> also making news this morning, a story that has left a lot of football fans, well, you don't even have to be a faj because you probably heart about left folks feeling duped. notre dame's linebacker, manti teo's girlfriend died back in september, at least that's what we thought but it turned

joe biden gave a list of recommendations from his task force. officials on capitol hill say the president is considering 19 steps he could take on his own without anything from congress. wendell goler at the white house tonight. what do we know about the president's plan, wendell? >> shep, we expect it will include a combination of things, proposals for congress to take up and things as you say the administration can do on its own. the latter include cracking down on people who lie on background checks, tougher penalties for gun traffickers and better access to state and mental health records. the president will also propose things that will require congressional approval including ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines and universal background checks for gun buyers. all of these are long shots and aides say even those things wouldn't completely solve the problem. >> this is something that we have to address as a nation. it's not something you can do alone through executive action. it's not something you can do with even a series of laws that congress might pass.
to the empire state. not even close. tomorrow as i mentioned. president obama along with uncle joe biden and his task force will present what is described as a sweeping set of gun control proposals. >> i can tell you that tomorrow the president and the vice-president will hold an event here at the white house to unveil a package of concrete proposals to reduce gun violence and prevent future tragedies, tragedies like the ones in newtown, connecticut. i will not get ahead of the president in terms of what his package of proposals will include. i will simply note that the president has made clear that he intends to take a comprehensive approach. >> sean: although jay carney was hesitant to outline what the president is proposing, fox news learned that an assault weapons ban, universal background checks, limits on ammunition are among the measures that will be announced at the mid day event. in addition to those extremely controversial moves our imperial president will unveil up to 19 executives orders he will take without approval of congress and details of what exactly those orders remain focused
. president obama will receive the task forced man by joe biden, the recommendations there. interestingly, he didn't want to go too far in specifics today, i think wanting to wait, see the proposal and what he can get down and sounded a note that he understood he probably would n't get everything he wanted. >> thanks for that, chris. we hope -- >> thank you. >> -- to see you tomorrow. starting the week. my colleague tamron hall has a look at what's next. >> great to see you. next hour, new reaction after president obama addresses two urgent issues in the last news conference of his first term. on the debt feeling, the president telling the congress the united states is not a deadbeat nation that doesn't pay the bills and on gun control legislation, the president urging congress to examine their own conscience and put politics aside. representatives jackie spear and adam schiff will join us and look at the battles ahead coming up in three.

the country and seen on current tv this is the "bill press show." >> bill: today, vice president joe biden meeting with president obama to present to him the recommendations out of his task force. he's been hard at it for the last month in the wake of the newtown, connecticut. to come up with recommendations for the congress. and according to some lawmakers 19 steps that the vice president feels the president himself can take without needing congressional authority on the issue of gun violence. this time it looks like it's just not going to go away. there will be some action. randi weingarten is very much part of that conversation. representing america's teachers as president of the american federation of teachers. before we go to the phones, randi, peter you've been following social media comments. >> we're tweeting at bpshow. rd copeland says barack obama was right. the money drives the nra. it is why nra want more guns in schools and not less. profits above all. even kids' safety. karen, short and to the point says nra sells guns from fear. they will never be sensible. we're tweeting at
of the mentally ill and banning assault weapons. president obama has in hand to the recommendations from joe biden on gun-control and will push for action. the front page of the washington journal says president obama escalates the fight on the w economy. is the debt ceiling negotiable? your thoughts? send us a tweet or post your comment on facebook. you can also send us an e-mail. president obama held his last official news conference of the first term yesterday in the east room of the white house. here's what he had to say on the debt ceiling debate. [video clip] >> republicans and congress have two choices. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect ransomed in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well-being of the american people well-being is not a leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states is not a bargaining chip. they had better choose quickly, because time is running short. the last time republicans in congress even flirted with t
of friends. they do trust each other. mitch mcconnell knows if joe biden gives him his word, it is good. we need more of that in washington, not less. >> let me ask you, since i have you, something else the president mentioned, asked, of course, about gun violence in this country. here we are, one month since the horrendous shootings in newtown, connecticut. and we now know that he has the vice president's proposals on his desk. what should we be hearing about the proposals, john? >> this is going to be a fascinating test of the president, brooke. what he wants to do and how much he's willing to spend of his own political capital to get it in the second term. because what he wants to do is big things. immigration reform, a fight with the republican base. gun control, that means a fight with the republican base. this debt ceiling and the other spending and tax issues, that means a fight with the republican base. if you thought the election was going to bring kumbaya to washington, today's press conference told you you're wrong. the president was fascinating. he made crystal clear an assault
best quality of life in the world and destroy the united states of america, barack obama, joe biden, hillary clinton, and eric holder are destroying the united states. >> stephanie: everything he says these days smells a little treasony. >> yeah, didn't he say he would be dead or in jail if the president was reelected. >> stephanie: yeah. the president's approval rating has shot up significantly after the negotiations with the fiscal cliff, and now again after the gun control. johnny in georgia. hi, johnny. >> caller: good morning, first-time caller from the peachy state of georgia. enjoy your show. >> stephanie: thank you. thank you. >> caller: try to watch it every morning. i have got a thought. i think that we -- you know, we can agree on a lot of stuff, and i think we need to stop calling these assault -- so-called assault weapons assault weapons. nobody [ inaudible ] pick one up and loaded it said i'm going to go assault somebody. they say i'm going to kill something. let's start calling them what they are weapons of mass destruction. and our republican friends
and that was incidentally first initiated and passed by joe biden. so she's the right person for to appoint whom we should do next. assault weapons falls within the bounds of the second amendment and so does everything else we are urging. this isn't a constitutional question, it is of political courage. the supreme court that defines what the constitution means and says has ruled that reasonable regulations are consistent with the second amendment so when the government raises the second amendment is nothing more than a red herring. it's time for the second amendment defenders in congress to call them to read that three measures i mentioned require background checks for all the gun sales making gun trafficking if federal crime and limiting military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. we require leadership from the president and members of congress but there are other steps president obama can take without congressional approval. if any time he chooses with just the stroke of a pen. vice president biden understands this and we hope his recommendations will include at least these four steps t
's bad to leave congress out of the equation. the good thing is it appears that joe biden did solicit people from both sides of the aisle on this debate to come and have this discussion with him. i think one of the most important things that many americans agree with is that this should be a comprehensive approach. you may not agree with every tenet of what the president will talk about today or any of them, but at least it was a comprehensive approach and to hear that the nra is at least happy with some of the things involved and maybe other people who feel differently than the nra are happy with some of the things, i don't think you'll ever have a plan where every single person is going to be happy with it. so let's see what it is first before we judge it completely. in the meantime, one of the things that's causing big stir is the fact that the president is going to be surrounded when he makes this announcement by children from around the country who wrote the president letters in the wake of that tragedy. so that has become a big question today. we know that imagery in politics, s
